Brazil is considered the ‘spiritual home’ of soccer and the game is a religion to most Brazilians. But despite their passion for the game, many children from underserved communities in Brazil don’t even have the opportunity to play the game they love. Brazil has one of the most unequal societies in the world, with millions living in poverty.
In the overcrowded favelas of the country’s major cities, children are often forced to play in the street, at risk from traffic and crime, or in trash dumps and other dangerous places. You’ll join the non-profit organization love.fútbol as they empower local Brazilians to plan, build, and manage their own community soccer fields using them as platforms for social education.
